What is inter-May-ssion? I remember saying, in my previous post, that I wish I could press pause on May. It may look like I did because this blog was quiet for the whole month of May. There was a long inter-May-ssion. See what I did there? :-D What happened? Well... Cray-cray May! When May came in, our helper went out and had a two-week vacation. Hubby and I teamed up for the household chores. The littlest one's ballet classes were still ongoing. Nobody's going to stay at home with the … [Read more...]
Press Play On April, Cymplified!

Value In Aloneness, Cymplified!
being alone... I don't remember going to the canteen by myself, buying my own food and sitting down to consume it alone, in grade two. It seemed that I was always with a friend, or a classmate, doing things together. Maybe I don't remember correctly. Although, I do remember that I mostly had lunch alone in college. When I wasn't part of a block anymore, I rode the jeep from one school building to another without a companion. I had a different schedule from the people I know. There wasn't a … [Read more...]
Start Anew, Cymplified!
start anew, begin again In 2016, I started a project called Joyful Days. It's a collection of watercolor calendar inserts for my Starbucks planner this year. I will show them to you guys soon. Positivity may be my word for the year. I think I am negative, to my kids and especially to myself. I want to choose love, to focus on the good. Sounds easy, right? Yet it is hard heart♥work. Many times I have failed. I have criticized. I have made myself cry. It's a new year. Therefore, let's start … [Read more...]
When Doubt Whispers, Cymplified!
When doubt whispers, what will you do? There are times when I find myself in a sinkhole. It's scary. It's dangerous. It's called doubt. Do you know what's beneath it? Depression. People tend to dismiss doubts as they are tiny, like seeds. They don't easily catch our attention as they move stealthily, creeping into consciousness. Like thieves, unexpectedly they steal our joy and peace. But if these seeds are watered with feelings of failure and regrets, they will grow … [Read more...]
